Lovely zoo, plenty to see and many of the animals were playing and moving around. Food in the Mexican restaurant was very good and not overpriced. Only downside was admission do not accept visa but there is a cash machine nearby.

It was really nice visiting the zoo, we went early so there weren't many people and we managed to go around it pretty fast and not constantly bumping into other people. If you are going there with children they will totally love it :)

The zoo is nice and clean, but it sure needs to have more animal species. The best part is the open area where kids can play and take photos with little goats.

The first thing I’ll mention is they do not accept credit card to purchase entrance tickets. We had to go down the block to pull out cash via an ATM. It is a small zoo and a few locations are under construction. However, there are...More
